SWTC Karaoke, an interesting mix of soft wool and soy silk knitted on slightly larger needles giving a wonderful draping quality. We chose the shade Mermaid Mix to create a gradual colour change, but the range has many solid and self-striping shades too. Anyone in the UK who needs a supplier, contact KnitterMum who is the current UK rep for this yarn and has it in stock.
